Jam Handy And GM
Jam Handy was located On Grand Blvd 6 blocks east of GM headquarters in the golden tower of the Fisher Bldg, Detroit and was still there 25 years later.
I wonder if some of these men are conscientious objectors. Many of them are not doing skilled work in this film so I wondered. I do know that skilled machinists generally remained state side.
Frankly, this film gave me a headache. The Canadian versions of war factory films were a little more creative. You can find them on the National Film Board site.

Quite a Production.
After all that our breathless announcer has said, all I can add is...DANG! Something tells me these tired war workers really didn't need this jingoism.

Kill! Kill! Kill!
I must say, this is probably the most sweat inducing movie I've seen in this archive, it's a buried treasure for sure.
As soon as the trumpets blare, and the title comes up, (and then another title, saying exactly the same thing) the narrator starts SHOUTING at us, and just doesnt stop, about the manufacture of war time machinery at chevrolet plants, A barrage of "Kill The Enemy NOW!" patriotic jingo is used, and you can't help but be caught up in it! The 2nd half of the movie focuses on the workers in Dayton OhIo, on how they're in the battlefield! How they're in the air! In the trenches! Kill! Kill! Kill!
Quite possibly the most propagandistic movie I've seen, this is a MUST SEE on this site!
